This #3 Common Grade Solid Red Oak flooring is great for low budget situations where the higher grades are just not an option, or when a very rustic floor is desired. This grade of flooring will include all of nature's marks, including both open and closed knots, mineral streaks, and a wide variety of color and grain variation. This grade of flooring may also include splits, cracks, open knot holes, broken tongues/grooves, and other natural defects. With this grade you will get a percentage that is unusable. The bottom line with this flooring is SUBSTANTIAL SAVINGS, and a beautiful end product, that is full of natural color.
